12 Parties from Around the World


1.) Burning Man

Ok, we are a little biased about Burning Man since we've grown up close to this amazing festival. We think it's one of the best places in the world. A place where anything goes, self expression is encourage and money is not allowed. In the middle of the desert, this is a place where art and music are the main focus. It's the type of event where you come not knowing what to expect and leave a different person. Burning man is something everyone should experience once in their lifetime.

2.) Full Moon Party

Backpacking through South East Asia is the perfect trip for anyone looking to have an amazing time. Days are spent relaxing on pristine beaches and nights are spent dancing barefoot with new friends with your toes in the sand. Once a month a tiny island of Koh Phangan in Thailand hosts their famous full moon party. It's guaranteed to be a night you will always remember. Imagine dancing, swimming, and drinking buckets under a full moon with the sound of jungle bass music in your ears.

3.) Hostel hopping in Europe

You're guaranteed to have a wild night or two when backpacking through Europe!  Hostels are perfect for budget travelers and are a great place to meet other travelers from all over the world.  We've met some incredible friends at hostels and had some unforgettable experiences. Try a pub crawl, nothing like a few drinks to let that newly learned French vocab fly that you have been practicing.

4.) British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are home to some of the most famous beach bars in the world. Ever heard of Foxy's or Soggy Dollar? Charter a sailboat to take you from island to island while sampling famous rum cocktails with your feet in the sand. Make sure to stop by Willie T's; a pirate ship turned floating bar that is only accessible by boat.

5.) Oktoberfest

Large beers, bratwurst, and lederhosen. If you want to experience one of the largest parties in Europe, hit Oktoberfest. Each year around 6 million gather in Munich to celebrate and a grand total of 7 million liters of beer is consumed. There is nothing better than drinking a large liter of beer in a German beer hall.

6.) Las Vegas

7.) Christmas Markets of Europe

Next Christmas ask Santa for some flights to Europe. You will never feel more festive than at one of Europe's Christmas markets. Grab a couple glasses of mulled wine as you stroll through the maze of huts all while admiring the hundreds of twinkley lights and decorations surrounding you. You feel like you are inside a Christmas fairytale, it's one of our favorite ways to celebrate the holidays.

10.) Gili Trawangan

This funky little island off of coast of Lombok (near Bali) is known for it's mellow vibe and hopping party scene. On “Gili T” you won't find any cars or motorbikes you may either walk, bike, or take an adorable horse-drawn carriage from place to place. This is what make the Gili T so charming. But when night falls this tiny island turns it up. With tons of beach side bars you can dance into the night with your toes in the sand. If you're in Bali make sure so spend a night or two on this little party island.

11.) Mardi Gras

Dance on Bourbon Street to live jazz music as heavily decorated floats drift by and throw beads into the crowd. Drink a hurricane and dive in along side the others and try to catch as many beads as you can.
